"My first job as a Professional"

StarStarStarStarStar
Former Employee - Product Designer in Sherman Oaks, CA
Former Employee - Product Designer in Sherman Oaks, CA

I worked at Performance Designed Products full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I was very fortunate to be brought in as design student directly from school and to work under PDP Creative Director. This individual was a true mentor and source of knowledge about design and creative approach. In those early days I was given freedom to learn, experiment and contribute with the team of artists I worked with and to the company we were all a part.

Cons

Reorganization divided artist into divisions and new office space separated us on to different floor levels. What was once a group effort became disconnected by the move.

Advice to Management

Aside from the encouragement to learn new tools, make a point to require an understanding of the basic interfaces to ignite the curiosity.

    Pros

    This is a spectacular group of people. Very motivated and very intelligent. It is a comfortable work environment that is fast paced and demanding but very fulfilling.

    Cons

    Other than the occasional boxing match between departments (which is normal and expected) this is a great work environment. However, the company's CEO has to answer to it's parent company Patriarch Partners, which is a real challenge (and I'm being nice here by not going into details).

    Advice to Management

    If you are considering employment as a member of the executive team, keep in mind that the interaction with Patriarch will be stressful and volatile. If you are arriving as a manager, you will be fine as long as you perform well and are dedicated to your job - - just like any other employer
